London - Mercanta

Off we went to Mercanta for a tour of their headquarters and a cupping session, not sure what to expect we were greeted by Stephen Hurst and Guy Bosley and shown to the cupping lab where they had prepared a coffee or two for us to cup.

We sampled some very interesting coffees including a Sidikalang Natural, a few standouts, some of which are about to land in Melbourne.

Tha facilities at Mercanta are excellent, there's a purpose built training room home to the London School of Coffee, several sample roasters and a custom built cupping table with an identical one at origin in Guatemala.

Special thanks not only to the team at Mercanta but also to Fleur of Melboune Coffee Merchants for arranging the tour.
